WOW! Read reviews prior to going, most were accurate. If you need a BBQ fix this place will suit your needs. There was line when I arrived at 7:15 pm on a Monday night, but it moved fairly quickly. Prices are by the pound. So if you get a lot of meat it's a little spendy. I recommend ordering by... More

I do not care if you are from Memphis, North Carolina, nor Kansas City. Your BBQ will never compare to Texas' BBQ, specially if it comes from Hard Eight BBQ. Expect a line to go inside the Pit BBQ joint, however, expect the best mouth watering BBQ known to humans. Don't waste your time with "Sides." Side dishes are not... More

It's always a pleasure to eat here, this is the meat lover heaven! The brisket was delicious, tasty and tender. Relaxed decor with shared tables, good beers and very good dessert. Don't miss it!

You order your meats directly from the XXL grills before you file inside for sides and condiments. It doesn't get any better than that. Live music on the weekends. Both indoor and outdoor seating.

From mn and az and we don't have bbq like this. Amazing brisket, spicy sausage, turkey, and ambience. The scene add cool with a local band and customer service was fantastic with one of the servers stopping by to tell us jokes.

Food was great. We had all the meats. We were there with friends and family, with kids. Their sauce is also great. Beans are free. Sweet tea is also delicious, really sweet, Texas Style. One bad thing is the ordering process. You're waiting outside in a long life, with the BBQ pits. So, as if the heat of the day... More

Finally some good food in Dallas! Really awesome authentic Texas BBQ joint, exactly what we were hoping to find on our short trip. Luckily we asked some locals where to go to get the best BBQ and more then one said this place and they were right. The line you stand in is right where the guy is grilling up... More
